The Super Zoom Master L-608 is the latest addition to the extensive line of Sekonic Exposure Meters which have been market leaders. It was designed to be the ultimate meter, a do-all instrument for the most demanding pros.

It is the first zoom spot meter with digital spot viewfinder readout on the market. Nine camera-quality lens elements are required to accomplish its 1° to 4° zoom range.

its sealed housing and controls make it water and moisture resistant. Yes, you can use it in the rain, but it is not an underwater meter.

The large LCD display makes reading easy, and it lights up automatically in dark surroundings. In order not to crowd the controls, four functions which are less frequently used, are confined to DIP switches, located in the battery compartment. Because of its many features, the L-608 requires this rather extensive manual. But since you will never use all of the function at the same time, once you have learned all about it, it is simple and its use will become second nature. The Super Zoom Master L-608 has undergone extensive quality controls at every step of manufacture. Please read this instruction manual thoroughly, to be able to take advantage of its many features and to obtain the long service life it is designed for.

Thank you for your confidence in Sekonic.
